Pochettino Wins Long-Awaited First Career Trophy as PSG Claims 8th Straight Trophee Des Champions

The wait is finally over for Mauricio Pochettino.

The Argentine manager failed to win a trophy during his managerial runs at Espanyol, Southampton, and Tottenham. But now, Pochettino has claimed his first career trophy as Paris Saint-Germain defeated Olympique de Marseille to win yet another Trophee des Champions final.

PSG got the scoring rolling in the first half thanks to a Mauro Icardi goal, which came after it had two goals ruled as offside.

PSG added another goal in the second half thanks to a Neymar penalty score.

While Marseille scored a late goal to put itself at within a goal from tying the match up, PSG held on to clinch a 2-1 victory.

For PSG, this is its eighth straight Trophee des Champions final win. PSG opened up this streak when it defeated Bordeaux in the 2013 Trophee des Champions Final.

Overall, PSG has won 10 Trophee des Champions finals.

PSG will now look ahead to a Ligue 1 away fixture against Angers.
